The Perkins Conroy Speakers Series Presents Dr. Kristen Lee

On Thursday, April 8th, the Perkins Conroy Speakers series held its third virtual event, “Cultivating Resilience in Complex Times” with internationally recognized, award-winning behavioral science professor, clinician, author, and activist, Dr. Kristen Lee.

We’ve all been navigating this global pandemic and the escalating mental health crises can take their toll on all of us. Resilience is a process of positive adaptation in the face of hardship. As humans, we are wired for it – capable of navigating complexity, remaining agile, and demonstrating optimism. Modern brain science offers a host of strategies for cultivating resilience by leveraging “protective factors” –adopting and practicing mindsets, behaviors, and activities that serve as buffers and help bolster our well-being. Learn ways to engage in self-care that helps nourish and sustain us during intensive times.
